English as a Second Language

Our Fix-it Phonics program has been especially designed for learning English as a second language. It is a structured course that uses the tried and tested Letterland system to teach phonics.

Fix-it Phonics is an all-inclusive, step-by-step programme. It has four structured levels that help children to quickly master all the English letter shapes and sounds as well as reading, writing and communication skills.

Fix-it Phonics Level 1 introduces the English alphabet and first speaking skills. It also covers letter recognition skills (Aa-Zz sounds and shapes), listening skills, basic English vocabulary and oral blending and segmenting.
